On Friday my friend Michael and I played hookie from work in the afternoon and went to a showing of Star Wars: Rogue One. Going into this film I had only heard good things, so my expectations were a bit high. I tried to keep my hopes low though, so as not to be disappointed if I didn’t like the film. However, I’m pleased to report that I really liked the film, and left feeling like I had finally seen a really great story set in the Star Wars universe, that wasn’t dependent on the main cast of characters to uphold.
That’s all I’ll say before the fold. As stated above I will be going full-0n spoiler in my comments below. I would recommend seeing the movie before reading any further, as going in with a clean slate is well worth it.
